One not lame excuse, and in my opinion is a viable reason, is that we temporarily have custody of my sweet step kids. Which is a wonderful blessing, but my life is even less conducive to blogging than normal. BUT I have a quick little post for you today, and I have several more posts ready to get up asap. I wanted to post this one because tomorrow is Valentine's Day, and perhaps you need a Slacker Mom treat to prepare for your family tomorrow? I thought you might.
This recipe is something I came up with, but it's kind of cheatery to call it "my" recipe. Let's look at the ingredients: boxed brownies, prepared as directed but unbaked, and one can of frosting. Obviously this is a recipe that doesn't take a lot of brain power. You can, of course, make your own fabulous brownie batter from scratch. More power to you if you do, but this is a slacker mom post, not a super mom post. :) Feel free to use our good friend Betty Crocker and don't feel bad if you do!
1 brownie mix, batter prepared as directed
1 can white frosting
Prepare a jelly roll pan (15x20x1) with a piece of parchment paper. Spray with baking spray. Bake brownies at 350 degrees on jelly roll pan for approximately 20 minutes (ovens will vary), until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool. Using a cookie cutter, cut out hearts. Heat up frosting in microwave on high for 1 minute. Add food coloring, stir. Pour over brownie hearts and decorated as desired.
